Revenge porn scandal rocks LAPD

LOS ANGELES -- A Los Angeles Police Department detective has filed a temporary restraining order against an LAPD senior lead officer accusing him of revenge porn.

The detective making the accusation is identified as Ysabel Villegas, a detective with the LAPD's Robbery-Homicide Division.

Villegas is also married to former LAPD Assistant Chief Jorge Villegas, who suddenly retired earlier this year after a sex scandal involving a subordinate officer that was first reported in The Los Angeles Times.

According to the restraining order, Ysabel Villegas claims she had a romantic relationship with Officer Danny Reedy for 5 years.

She alleges in the restraining order that after their relationship ended, Reedy distributed explicit photos of her, without her consent.

Lisa Bloom, Villegas' attorney, tells ABC7 it is against the law to distribute such photos without the person's permission.

In the restraining order, Villegas also accuses Reedy of physical abuse, including hitting her in the head twice.

Michael Williams, Reedy's attorney, denies the allegations, saying Reedy never took photos of Ysabel Villegas and does not know who distributed the images. Williams also says Reedy did not have a long-term relationship with Villegas.

LAPD Public Information Director Josh Rubenstein says the department is prohibited by law from discussing personnel matters, but does say that Reedy is currently assigned home.
